The Oxford Compendium of Visual Illusions

Sang Wook Hong

Brightness of an object is not determined solely by physical intensity of light reflected from the object, but it is also affected by spatial structure of the surrounding light. In the new brightness illusion introduced by Hong and Kang, on the other hand, brightness of a stationary object can be greatly altered by the presence of another object that is moving around the stationary one. This novel brightness illusion sheds light on the question of how interaction among visual objects affects their appearance. This chapter discusses these concepts, including possible neural mechanisms, and explores implications for other illusions, including motion-induced blindness, among others.

Keywords:   brightness, brightness illusion, motion, visual objects, neural mechanisms
